About Bill or Terry

From Oklahoma but love Destin! Came once and had to own our own piece of paradise!

Bill or Terry purchased this house in 2012

Why Bill or Terry chose Miramar Beach

Paradise Retreat is centrally located to everything in Destin and very close to the beach! Building a pool was easy! Love walking to restaurants along the beach too!

What makes this house unique

Gated community from both HWY 98 and Scenic Gulf Drive so getting around is much easier! Private pool & nice upgrades make this home special! Loved upgrading this home. The big expansive living space and open concept sold us!

Reviewer Comments:

This was a wonderful vacation home! My husband and I have two small children and my parents came too. There was more than enough room for everyone! I loved how each bedroom had a TV. The house was spacious and pretty clean. All of the beds were very comfortable. The kitchen was very nice but could use a few new pots and pans. My only real negative comment is the living room furniture. It is very worn in and needs a good scrubbing. The pool was a major selling point for us. It is as beautiful in person as it is in the pictures. We swam every day and every night. Our kids are a bit young to be on the beach all day, so it was really nice to have a pool all to ourselves. This house is also in a great location. We would stay here again and will recommend this rental to our friends/family. One more thing, we ended up arriving at noon the day of our check-in and had been awake all night. The realtors so kindly notified us as soon as the house was ready. This ended up being three hours before our official check-in time. I cannot say thank you enough for that!! We were exhausted and I was so grateful to get in the house early.

First time in Destin and awesome experience! House is very close proximity to the beach and comes fully equipped to meet your daily needs. Loved having the beach cart to bring our belongings to and back from the beach. Pool was ideal for kids and provided endless entertainment! Will for sure stay here again!

Our family stayed for spring break and we had a wonderful time and made lots of lasting memories!! The pool was our favorite hangout, the house was beautiful and perfect for our family of 9. Thank you for the seamless service, everything was a breeze from booking to departing. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it for large families.

We loved our week at this house! Very clean upon arrival. Love the decor and the beds are comfy. We had 6 tweens with us and the pool definitely kept them preoccupied while we were at home. 10 minute walk to the beach. The wagon and sandcastle buckets were much aprreciated and used. I highly recommend this home. We are trying to plan a trip back right now!! Also, Tyler was extremely helpful - great customer service!! Thank you again!!

Reviewer Comments:

The whole process of getting to enjoy Sweet Retreat from booking to arriving was made easy. The house is very well situated to enjoy this lovely coast and surrounding area - lots of fishing and beach stuff. A lot of thought must have gone into the design of the house, it provides perfect accommodation for a family group. The interior space is ideal for relaxing or eating in, and is kitted out very well to make self catering easy. The only small crit would be the grill - it did not match up to the quality of everything else. The back garden (yard) was perfect for small children with its gated access to the delightful little pool - happy times!

This was our first visit to Destin and it will not be our last! The house was beautiful and well maintained and the location was perfect...only a 5 minute walk to the beach. The kitchen is well stocked with every dish and utensil you will need. We didn't use the pool much as we were at the beach most of the time, but we loved sitting around it to eat or relax. Great place to stay. We will be back next year!
